The mythical Beatles rooftop concert turns 53 years old: watch the new full and remastered version here
The legendary concert that Beatles they gave on January 30, 1969 on the roof of the Apple Corps building, the last one they gave before separating, it has many priceless moments. Perhaps the best is when Paul McCartney smiles mischievously when he sees the police show up for his prank, but there are many more, some of them almost imperceptible without a careful look. For this reason, a new review of that film, in a new version remastered for its 53rd anniversary, is a gift for the senses.
For the first time, the full audio of that high-flying performance has been mixed in stereo and Dolby Atmos by Giles Martin and Sam Okell, and Apple Corps Ltd./Capitol/Ume have prepared its streaming premiere to celebrate the event.
In addition to the streaming output of ‘The Beatles: Get Back-The Rooftop Performance’, the anniversary celebration of this electrifying concert will continue with more announcements, tributes and events. Today, the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame announces an impressive exhibition entitled The Beatles: Get Back to Let It Be’ which opens on March 18 this year and runs until March 2023. The perfect complement to Peter Jackson’s docuseries ‘Get Back’, the multimedia exhibition will welcome fans to enter the rehearsals and sessions of January 1969 and witness the last performance of the band, surrounded by huge projectors and impressive sound. The scene is incredibly decorated with original instruments, clothing, handwritten lyrics, and other unique items, including several items on loan from the Beatles themselves. The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame will host special events throughout the show, including interviews, film showings, panels and more to be announced throughout the year.
